This might be a great...honeyMOON?? :-) boom! 
The European Space Agency has released blueprints for the first habitable lunar base for mankind. Using robotic builders, the entire base would be built with lunar soil. Using high-tech 3D printing, livable dome-shaped buildings would be built. Some experts are claiming that within the next 40 years, the establishment could be ready for humans to occupy.

With 90% of needed materials for buildings already present on the moon, the ESA’s human spaceflight team’s Scott Hovland said: ”3D printing offers a potential means of facilitating lunar settlement with reduced logistics from Earth.”

The lunar soil would get turned into a cream-like substance, which then gets sprayed to form solid block material used for wall-building at the speed of ~2 meters per hour.

Make your voice heard, and urge your representatives to support NASA funding, and that you want NASA to be a part of this could-be collaborative mission:

A Lenticular Cloud Over New Zealand

What's happening above those mountains? Several clouds are stacked up into one striking lenticular cloud. Normally, air moves much more horizontally than it does vertically. Sometimes, however, such as when wind comes off of a mountain or a hill, relatively strong vertical oscillations take place as the air stabilizes. The dry air at the top of an oscillation may be quite stratified in moisture content, and hence forms clouds at each layer where the air saturates with moisture. The result can be a lenticular cloud with a strongly layered appearance. This picture was taken in 2002 looking southwest over the Tararua Range mountains from North Island, New Zealand.
